The Rejoinders is a research network and curatorial project between India and Wales, funded by India Wales, a British Council and Arts Council Wales / Wales Arts International programme as part of the UK / India Year of Culture 2017-18. The project relied on an open framework to collectively develop sites of action. The digital interface was conceived as a window onto the whole process of collaboration – designed to move through and be responsive to various phases. The exhibition was approached as another form of realisation, engaging open-ended enquiry through visual and written prompts, mirroring that of the platform.

Research and development of the project, a collaboration between Jess Mathews and Melissa Hinkin, arose from a British Council Wales Scoping Visit to Delhi & Mumbai in May 2016. Key concerns in its initiation were the production of a new curatorial framework (both a conceptual model and practical tool) that could bring creative practitioners from Wales and India together; digital innovation through the production of a web-platform as a working resource, and a tool for articulation in the very realisation of its form; developing a practice-based approach to building a new language of collaboration across regions and disciplines.

The network resulted in a programme of studio visits; a purpose-built tool for collaboration; four artist residencies; and the production of twelve original artworks. Realised in collaboration with g39,CONA Foundation, What About Art?, and the University of Worcester, the project received a total production budget of £28,500, with additional in-kind support. The project included four artist residences and culminated in a public exhibition (11/05/18 – 02/06/18.
